Japan ist der Name einer ehemaligen Synthpop-Band.

Japan wurden 1974 in Lewisham, London von den Schulfreunden David Sylvian, Mick Karn, Richard Barbieri, Steve Jansen und Rob Dean gegründet. Die Band löste sich Ende 1982 nach den Aufnahmen für die Doppel-LP Oil On Canvas auf. 1991 vereinigte sie sich ohne Rob Dean wieder und veröffentlichte ein Album unter dem Namen Rain Tree Crow.

  • Ah,the old DD/Jap tropic..:o/ &i would always kinda disagree*) DD never actually really 'tried' to sound like Japan, if you actually know&listened carefully their first LPs (and even more obvious later^).. They were built and meant to be a no shame angry/angsty teen dance and neodisco mainstream 'f* you' glamy war act (&also Enoesque^) - from the play/mock with the MTV barnums&the likes of their times if possible. &it worked amazingly for them.^ ..&they were used for that at max till they collapse from exhaustion just 3/4 years later (hits/trends talking) ^^ not really a private and small reunion act like Japan..that wanted to be more bowie/roxy music purists till the end. Now a guy from DD loved the haircuts/class of one from Jap (guess who^). Now one always loved the bass from another (RIP - but played it in another style - guess who too^)..good we all have the albums left now. Different..energies. different..moments. &both always singular even now imho..peace to both) :*/
  • I agree :) Duran Duran tried to sound like Japan. Japan is a brilliant band, and David is a GENIUS.
  • ▾Would have to agree.
  • Someone wrote they're just like Duran Duran. I think it's the other way. Duran Duran is like Japan.
